  • 1. Iowa State University; University of Virginia
  • 2. Randolph-Macon College
  • 3. Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology
  • 4. American Geophysical Union


This seminar is part of a series to provide societies and their journals with information and resources to help their communities be more knowledgeable and prepared to share data (and software) in a way that is relevant and meaningful for each discipline.  This is a 12-month series.

Researcher Perspectives on Improving Data Sharing and Reuse

   6 August 2021, 10am ET (1400 UTC)


  • Sarah Nusser, Professor Emerita of Statistics, Iowa State University; Research Professor, University of Virginia Biocomplexity Institute; and Senior Fellow, Association of American Universities
  • Alyssa Mikytuck, Assistant Professor, Randolph-Macon College


  • Yvette Seger, Deputy Director Public Affairs and Director, Science Policy, Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

Description: This seminar features Dr. Sarah Nusser’s recent work to identify researcher practices that promote data reusability and reduce researcher burden. Through this NSF EAGER grant, Sarah is working towards recommending a path for accelerating the readiness of the research community to effectively share and reuse data.

Resources referenced during the presentation:

Since this 2015 mandate for data sharing and open access, how the landscape changed at all? Is it being monitored/evaluated?   "Federally Funded Public Access Mandates." 

Holdren memo, which kicked off public access for articles and data in the US: 

This group might be interested in the work being done by the Coleridge Initiative on Rich Context — the goal is to help US agencies use state-of-the-art methods to develop automated ways of finding out what datasets are being used to solve problems, what measures are being generated, and which researchers are the experts. Conference to come on October 20. Much more details to come!

From COGR news summary: 8/4/21:  Dashboard will track hiring and promotion criteria (Nature) A US$1.2 million grant will fund an effort to identify and publicize the criteria that universities around the world use to hire and promote researchers. The Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), a global initiative to reform the evaluation of researchers, will use part of the funds to create an interactive dashboard that will shine much-needed light on a process that is often opaque and controversial...



Special thank you to Laura Lyon of AGU and her support organizing and managing this seminar.
